Rant!

The rant of the day!!!
I know Im not the only one among photographers in Irelend who experienced similar situation and this is not the first time it has happened to me! !! Hence the rant 😈
Models from Dublin!!!! Stop putting your family members to hospitals, getting into car accidents, funerals and severe sickness!!!! It’s such a common excuse when cancelling the shoot last min or in the middle of the night (where we should be in bed at that stage) When evening before all is OK and is going ahead!!!
We photographers also have life and plans and arrangements before the shoots. I personally have heard excuses like this so many times that could make a nice list of those “models” 😐

No photos here this time as I don’t wanna associate those people directly. They know already who they are πŸ˜‰

Have you had a similar experience before?

Now you can’t see me

I think it’s getting more apparent that Alina is trying to stay away from my camera, but in this case scenario it worked quite well for me πŸ˜€

End of Summer

So we finally reached the end of summer. Some people already have done their time off, some are still on or planning to go away. For me personally it’s kind of bit of the first and latter. We did our time off and already looking forward to the next one. We had a great time in Slovakia Tatry Mountains. Discovering new terrain and enjoying their amazing food, kindness and amazing vistas. Today for a change I want to share with you one of two videos that I managed to document during our adventurous time there. Hope I won’t disappoint you and don’t worry I will still continue posting my photos here. Just thought a little different post might be a good distraction πŸ˜‰

 

All filmed on my little Sony action camera, hand held! As simple as possible!

 

Oooops, the video can not be uploaded here!!! It says safety reason ?!?!?! Ah well, so here are some photos instead and the video can be view hereΒ  πŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Art

Most of my work is being constantly processed and more photos are ready to be published. These captures were taken during the golden hour right after heavy thunderous rainy day. The air was so fresh and clear and the sun painted reallyΒ  golden moments for us. We just walked into the fields and carried away with what we got that day. For all photos I used the same gear:

Enjoy now πŸ™‚

 

 

 

Catching up

As I have been catching up with my work after returning from holidays, I have totally forgotten about writing a post last weekend. So here it is, simple and yet effective. Roisin never modeled before and yet agreed to work with me and I have to say that, as for her first time she did a very good job. Very rarely I get the opportunity to work with someone very experienced and sometimes just ask random people, but not anybody for sure, it has to be a person that have “the spark in the eye” (not literally of course)

Long time no see

Back from one of the best holidays ever. It was a very special venture for me as I could share the place with Alina. The place where all my hiking, mountaineering and climbing has started. However we were on the other side of the mountains it was still a special time together… We had a very warm days mixed sometimes with thunders and little rain in the evening. This mixture gave me also an opportunity, with help of Alina, to do some photography too πŸ˜€ For now I have got only this one but there will be more for sure soon πŸ˜€

Wrong venue

When it comes to the weddings I usually arrive with plenty of time ahead. It helps me to scout the place find some new ideas and just shoot without any pressure along the day. This time being early saved my work indeed! Evening before this day I looked at some contracts and I found the Brooklodge Hotel near Aughrim Co Wicklow seem to be a very popular place for my couples. Being really tired that day I didn’t think much anymore and just packed the gear and went to sleep. Next morning, had breakfast and just headed to Brooklodge (auto – pilot). Once Im there I made a call with a bridesmaid to confirm I’m there and get details where and when to come, I just sat down in the lounge and enjoyed my coffee πŸ™‚Β  Got another call that I can come over and here is the funny part πŸ™‚ Went to the reception to find where is the brides room, they say there is no such a number, next thing they say they don’t have any wedding planned for the day!!!!!!!!!Β  I almost freaked out! πŸ˜€Β  Frantically trying to get info on my phone where the wedding is while the reception in that place is very very poor… and it came up that I was supposed to be in Naas!!! πŸ™‚ Driving through the mountains, blindly following my google maps, after an hour I made it and still pulled all the work! πŸ™‚

Two lessons, always focus only on a recent event and keep being early as much as possible. Just in case πŸ˜‰
